Only one story that I didn't like...wow...that's impressive in a short story collection. "Johnny Mnemonic - 5 stars - definitely going to reread this story." "The Gernsback Continuum - 5 stars - I just recently read this story, but for the life of me can't remember where. even better the second time...
